What do they mean, "Don't Panic!"?

How on Earth am I supposed to use my computer if the Arch wiki is down? :scream:

Cmon Jonathon, that’s why you always keep a local copy of the entire Arch Wiki at hand!

That reminds me… in the repo there’s also

community/arch-wiki-docs 20200527-1
    Pages from Arch Wiki optimized for offline browsing
community/arch-wiki-lite 20200527-1
    The wiki without html. 1/9 as big, easily searched and viewable on console.

They’re not going to be as up-to-date but will work if you want the “full wiki experience”. :grinning:

Even better, no Microsoft owned npm dependency :upside_down_face:

And it’s back online (sort of).
A prominent glitch on the top of each page but should be browsable/usable.

There is an Android app for the wiki - I don’t know if it was affected (works now, but perhaps was off briefly?) My tablet was my secret weapon for “Archway” installs :grin:

Not all of course, just stuff i use (exclude base Arch) :laughing:

Actually all is not that much as i though :thinking:

I actually thought it would be significantly more than 43GB of arch packages I haven’t installed.

Ok…how about whole AUR :rofl:

Does anybody else feel “the need” to try to install all of it?

Why install though, you can just download it to any location with:

 --cachedir "$directory"

Who knows…Maybe after end of the world in the bunker your children would want to install…
Hell i don’t know, Electron :rofl:

P.S. And remember kids: avoid partial upgrades!! :rofl:

P.P.S. I think that command is more appropriate btw, little more results

sudo pacman -Sw $(pacman -Slq)
